The Family Kitchen: Easy and Delicious Recipes for Parents and Kids to Make and Enjoy Together
The Summer House Cookbook: Easy Recipes for When You Have Better Things to Do with Your Time
Debra Ponzek, former chef at Montrachet in New York, was once one of America’s superstar culinary artists. But she chucked it all to lead a more normal life away from the pressure and the long, hard hours. Now she’s back with a cookbook that draws on the expertise she gained in the kitchen of one of the top restaurants in the country. Her goal is to show how to apply some of the secrets of the chef’s art in your kitchen at home. Crab cakes, for example, can be cooked most of the way through in advance and finished off before serving. Broths can be made way in advance. The book succeeds, both in passing on tricks of the trade and offering delicious, inspiring recipes.
